paperboy concord brunch

Paperboy, Concord

Throughout my life, there have been a number of jobs and careers that I wanted. When I was 5, I wanted to be a banker. Closest I came to that was opening a bank account. When I was 7, I wanted to be an archaeologist. Closest I came to that was watching Jurassic Park. When I […]

monkeys corner chippendale

Monkey’s Corner, Chippendale

I didn’t get in trouble much during school, but whenever I did, my teachers relished sending me into punishment. They referred to punishment as sticking me in the Monkey’s Corner. Who knew that one day I would look forward to going to said corner and would have it catered with amazing rice bowls and snacks […]

hana ju-rin sushi

Hana Ju-Rin, Crow’s Nest

This is going to be a long post so let me get to the drop the mic line as quickly as possible. There’s nowhere you rather be ju-rin dinner than at the sushi bar inside Hana Ju-Rin. Located in the very back of the restaurant behind a grill, bar and the ghosts of thousands of […]

Kusuka, Haymarket

What’s the tastiest ingredient any chef can incorporate into their dishes? In my opinion, it’s nostalgia. It’s the one spice that can take a diner back to what it was like when they were a kid and trying something for the first time, or something they’d eat when they first got home after school or […]

Gibbons Street Cafe, Redfern

I always respect people who give it their all. So I’ve gibbon my all to the following post about Gibbons Street Cafe in Redfern. Gibbons Street Cafe is the next off a high quality production line of cafes featuring high quality produce. Featuring a strong Thai influence doing a funky fusion dance with Australian brunch […]

Since I Left You, CBD

Since I Left You doubles as a hip bar with amazing food and an awesome sentence that directors love to incorporate into their movies for juicy scenes. Imagine Brad Pitt passing Jennifer Aniston on a fictitious street and complimenting her on how great she looks and Jen hitting him with “Oh yeah, I’ve been exercising […]

The Mandoo, Strathfield

Do you ever accept bad advice because you’re desperate for human interaction and the only people near you are super scummy and not very clever? Or maybe you’re just an eighteen year old at a club who has just angered his girlfriend who just needed a few tips to calm your significant other down? I […]

Cuppaflower, Waterloo

You can always tell how badly your friends have screwed up just by observing the size of the bouquets they were purchasing after work. Sure, some were being proactive and buying nice flowers for the Hell of it but few people splash out for $120 rose collections on random Wednesdays. I once saw a buddy of mine splash […]

Hong Kong Bing Sutt, Burwood

My trip to Hong Kong last year was enlightening in more ways than one. It was really cool being somewhere in which I wasn’t the minority, the ads were designed to cater to me and I was considered taller than the average person. I ate well, drank well and slept like a baby even if […]

superior burger wakeley

Superior Burger, Wakeley

I wake up early so I can take a nap before noon then wake up and feel like I have another glorious weekend day ahead of me. Does that make sense? Have my last 17 blog posts made any sense whatsoever? However, I am more than willing to forego a nap if there is great […]

belly bao chicken baoger

Belly Bao, CBD

A long time ago, in a galaxy that much resembles our own; a group of high school boys sat around a table at a Vietnamese restaurants. The boys meant well but were having an incredibly vulgar conversation about girls. Let’s present a highly edited version that won’t get me thrown out of the community: Boy […]

olio strozzapreti

Olio Kensington Street, Chippendale

One movie meme that refuses to die is how Titanic (the James Cameron classic that came out TWENTY YEARS AGO) ended. Let me refresh your memory: the Titanic has hit an iceberg and people are frantically evacuating the not-so-small boating accident. Our main characters played by Leo Dicaprio and Kate Winslet are whispering sweet nothings to each […]
